On Saturday, October 27th, The Men’s Club visited what is now known as Oakridge Estates. Some 80 years ago Barbara Stanwyck purchased a piece of property in the San Fernando Valley. The property bordered on the north by Devonshire Blvd, on the east by Reseda Blvd, on the south by what is now Lassen, and on the west by what is now Wilbur. On this property Ms. Stanwyck and Zeppo Marx, her agent and one of the Marx Brothers, built separate homes. Additionally, a thoroughbred training track and ranch were added. During this time period, Barbara and Zeppo called this the Marwych Ranch.more»
On Saturday, February 17, 2018, The Men’s Club visited the Santa Susan Depot Museum and Model Railroad display in Simi Valley. Our docent, Curt, was very outgoing and added so much to the tour. We were limited in time to two hours, but, I’m sure Curt could have gone all-day with the history and stories about the depot.more»
As the only Center in the Valley and now in our second year of operation, we came together for one overwhelming purpose…to provide JCC programs and services for everyone, present and future.
Is the Valley Jewish Community Center a truly happening place?
You Bet It Is! With an ever-growing list of programs, for a variety of ages and tastes, you are bound to find something that appeals to you.
Of course, if you want a program or activity that is specific to your likes, come help us put it together. As the saying goes “we can do anything we want, we just have put our minds together and make it happen”.
Please come join OUR FAMILY and help the Center grow!
So now sit back, put your feet up, take your mouse and browse the many programs and services being provided by VJCC. Choose something that interests you and become involved in that activity. Tell your friends and families about the Center. Attend one of our planning meetings where you will become part of our continuing efforts to develop new and exciting programs and services for our community.
Please call us with any questions.
We're glad you're here and look forward to meeting you.
Our growth and success can be attributed to the melding and blending of West Valley JCC, Valley Cities JCC and North Valley JCC.

This is Our Center
"Do you know a place where people have met, shook hands, laughed, danced, cried and after 50 years their friendship still thrives?"
"Do you know a place where you can express your communal life by helping others, creating a home for those who are unaffiliated, by carrying on the tradition and culture of the Jewish people?"
"Do you know a place where you can express your values and ethics through a variety of programs for people of all ages?"
"Do you want to ring the Jewish Community bell? Come join us where all this takes place."
Valley Jewish Community Center (VJCC) is a non-profit organization, founded upon Jewish ethics and values. Valley Jewish Community Center is committed to meeting the ever changing needs of the entire Jewish Community, to strengthening Jewish identity and to enrich the quality of Jewish life. Our objective is to facilitate programs that benefit our children, families, adults, and seniors, and in so doing, to support the entire community for generations to come.
